Exceed (エクシード Ekushīdo) are a race of cat-like beings that exist in Edolas as far back as 100 years prior to the main storyline.
Exceed are a race of cat-like beings of a wide variety of small sizes, colours and facial structures, among other things. Some can resemble humans to an extent, while others resemble cats entirely. They tend to be quite exuberant with their personalities, and are actually quite similar to humans to an extent. They are also capable of utilizing magic, but only have one known spell known as Aera , and have a limited amount of magic stored within their bodies.
Though Exceed don't have much in the way of combat, a few are capable of using a unique Battle Transformation that allows them to enlarge their size to that of a general human's, or rather, an athletic one. From herein, they are capable of feats that would be incapable of normal Exceeds, and easily possess the ability to fight on-par with advanced, spiritually aware humans as well as Shinigami and other races.
